After just releasing his Air Jordan 1’s in “Lux” Rubberized Python, famed sneaker customizer The Shoe Surgeon has returned with a new iteration of the iconic silhouette following the successful release of the Travis Scott’s “Cactus Jack” AJ1. Continuing on with premium materials and craftsmanship, Shoe Surgeon’s studio has put together an Earth Tone “Scrap Leather” TS AJ1 that shares many of the same characteristics as the rapper’s famed iteration.

Created using left-over materials found around his studio, The Shoe Surgeon’s latest model comes in a vibrant array of colors via tumbled leather and nubuck suede, paired with lux waxed laces in black. The shoe continues the reverse Swoosh on the lateral side, with “Cactus Jack” in gold marking the medial under-Swoosh. More similarities to the original include the shoe tag on the tongue as well as the unique stash pocket on the rear ankle collar. 

You can check out The Shoe Surgeon’s Earth Tone “Scrap Leather” TS AJ1 in the gallery above.

The shoes will be dropping via the studio’s web store on May 25 with a set retail price of $1,500 USD.
